[NC] Gold Hill
It was called Gold Hill back in the 1840s(?). It is located in North Carolina, in Rowan County, but a little closer to the Cabarrus-Rowan County line. It was once a place where those interested did dig for gold, and lots of small villages and so forth put up. White people worked there, so did freed Black and slave Black. However, it later became like most small areas a little rural town, where people set up their families and so forth. After the Civil War, many of the Black folks also began to live in and around or even a little closer to Gold Hill.
